Adult Stem Cells In Action

Adult stem cells improve healing of broken bones and could eventually serve as a new treatment for the 10 to 20 percent of fractures that fail to heal, according to a new study. The results were presented at The Endocrine Society's 90th Annual Meeting in San Francisco, by Froilan Granero-Molto, PhD, research associate of the University of North Carolina.

"Lack of fracture repair often leads to several surgeries, long periods of immobilization, pain, bone deformities, and sometimes death," said the study's senior investigator, Anna Spagnoli, MD, of the University of North Carolina. "The precise reason why a patient's fracture does not heal remains unknown in most cases." - Medical News Today
Embryonic advocates, put that in your pipe and smoke it!


  1. Technically they only have to rely on adult stem cells BECAUSE of people against use of embryonic stem cells.

  2. I still say that there's nothing wrong with killing babies, and I actually find it quite fun as well.
